And, because they're made from a blend of cotton and high-performance LYCRA T400 fiber, they move with you for a comfortable fit that lasts.
Activewear and Outdoor Apparel
Sweating is body's natural mechanism to stay cool. INVISTA's COOLMAX fabric helps wearer body cool and dry by moving moisture away from the body and enhancing fabric drying rate. The moisture management performance of COOLMAX fabric is inherent to the fiber structure itself; therefore, the performance cannot be washed off.
